Have been playing baseball videogames on consoles since the last good PC game was available(MVP 2005). MLB The Show 09 (for the PS3) is clearly the current standard of excellence for baseball videogamers(see my PS3 review for that game). I decided to buy a copy of MLB 2K9 for the pc just to see how it compares, and because I've been wanting a good pc baseball game for 4 years now (and it only costs $20 bucks)- so, I was ready to like this game a lot- but unfortunately, it doesn't meet even minimal expectations.

First of all, it does have a number of good aspects, even in comparison to MLB The Show 09. The announcing, for one thing, is far superior to The Show, and the ESPN style presentation is done very well. The stadium and gameplay sounds are also very good, and serve to create the MLB ballpark atmosphere very well.

Graphics are a mixed bag: while a few of the player models look like the real thing, most are just generic models, and some don't resemble the real life players AT ALL. For instance, Alexei Ramirez (White Sox) is a dark-skinned/black Cuban player- in this game version he looks Mexican- not even the correct skin tone, let alone looking at all like the real guy. Likewise, while some of the batting stances and pitching motions look just like the real players, many more do not, and unlike MLB The Show, are not editable. Stadium graphics are better, though nothing too special. Player ratings seem a bit skewed, particularly towards power ratings being way too high for most players, and pitcher's control ratings also generally way too good, though these are at least editable. However, you can't edit certain things, like types of pitches for real-life pitchers....

The good: It's a baseball game for the PC! Good graphics. Amazingly good commentary that is better than some of the announcers that you will hear on the radio for real baseball games. Great sound in every respect.

The bad: Very steep learning curve to figure out how to control the game. I use a keyboard and it took me over a week. I still haven't figured out all the controls. Unfortunately the instruction book doesn't really help, nor does the official website. Partly because of the controls, I find that I have to set the game on rookie settings to have any chance of winning.

I still have fun playing it, and for the low price it is worth it if you really want a baseball game. But don't buy it unless you are ready to be patient with the learning curve.

Here are a couple hints: Use the [] keys to navigate menus. Sometimes you have to use the right mouse button to navigate menus too, even though the instructions on screen tell you to press escape.

The keys to use for pitching are numberpad 0 (down), 4 (left), 8(up), and 6 (right). To hit the ball, press 0 THEN 8.

Example of how to use the onscreen pitching instructions: If the instruction tell you to start with left, and then sweep around counterclockwise to the top, you should actually press 4 (left) THEN 0 (down). You just start the sweep, but you can't finish it, at least not on the keyboard. But it will give you the proper pitch.

Hope that helps. Would have been nice if the instruction booklet would have explained it, though.

Having owned several of the old 3DO High Heat Baseball games I was looking forward to a new, more real baseball simulation. I bought 2K Sports NBA 2K9 and after figuring out how to use my game pad with my PC I really enjoyed it (although I still can't figure out why 2K Sports didn't explain how to use a PC game pad with the game). Although I had read several of the reviews about the game that were unfavorable I bought it anyway.
My first frustration was with the pitching mechanism. It seems that it is extremely hard to pitch to spots in the strike zone. Therefore, the hitters get hits most of the time even when facing excellent pitchers (even if they are lousy hitters in real life). After the hitter hits the ball to the field you can't hesitate or the hitter gets extra bases. I would like to see options to allow the computer to take over fielding and throwing, allowing the gamer to concentrate on hitting, base running and pitching. While the graphics are excellent it is frustrating not to be able to play the game because of very poor documentation and virtual no computer assistance. If I were you I would wait to buy this game until 2K Sports remedies the problems that have been mentioned in my review.

This is the first baseball game i had played in 4 years. It is very fun and the various modes are complete and entertaining. However, the superstar mode (or whatever it's called) is a little bit shallow and repetitive. The franchise mode is very nice if you pick your favorite team and try to do things they would or wouldn't do. Otherwise it can be a bit unrealistic.
The game's general playability is marred by quite a few glitches that were fixed but only partially and only after a few months.

first off, let me say that i bought this for the pc, a brand new high powered Dell; this is arguably the best looking baseball sim out there; however, there are so many flaws that make it virtually unplayable; outfielders unable to move to make a catch, sometimes having the ball hit their head,firstbasemen taking their foot off the bag before the runner arrives,inability to swing at pitches,and, certianly not least,inability to properly control pitches; stay FAR away from this turkey
